Singapore Dollar (S$)
A crystallisation of all things Asia - that is the best way to describe Singapore. A country that is also a city, it has as many towering skyscrapers as green and serene spaces. This melange of concrete and refreshing landscapes and of tradition and modernity have earned Singapore the title of being the among most visited and loved tourist destinations.
Far from its humble origins, Singapore has emerged to be one of the fastest developing countries in the world. From shopping at international brand outlets to doing some thrifty street shopping and from having authentic dining experience at a Michelin-star restaurant to sampling the piquant street food, Singapore continues to surprise.
Singapore tourism is a microcosm of diverse experiences and varied delights. Green spaces are ubiquitous in this country and the government takes special efforts to preserve the same by introducing conservation programs. In fact, the Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report 2017 pegged it at the 17th spot in a list of 136 countries worldwide in terms of ease of business as well as tourism friendliness.
The main tourism draws in Singapore are of course - its food, nightlife, and modern architecture. It is said to be a country where ‘Passion is Made Possible’. A fact that is evident in the sumptuous food on every street, the architectural marvel of the Gardens By the Bay , the resolute joy of Universal Studios or the absolute luxury of the Marina Bay Sands. It is these possibilities that have made Singapore a destination worth visiting!
